Bluebonnet crop could be bountiful

Heavy summer rains, a dry fall and a cool winter are all good signs for bluebonnet watchers this year, experts say. Randy Bigham, who writes a regular column for the Ennis News, specifically about flowers, plants and horticulture said rains could help but also deter a bumper crop, especially if the area is saturated with too much rain it could inhibit blooming. “Bluebonnets locally are generally thought to be at their best in mid-April when the Bluebonnet Trails Fest is on but last year and occasionally over the last decade the blooming has been at a height in the first few weeks of April, even the end of March,” said Bigham. “Locally and, really, across Texas, they bloom every spring. Some seasons are more fruitful than others but they bloom, unaided, every year,” said Bigham. Read stories like this and more in your Weekend edition of The Ennis News. Be informed, subscribe today!
